FBreader on Galaxy S3, not reading SD card.

Hi. I'm pulling my hair out.
I can't find a way for FBreader to see/find my books on my sd card.
FBreader is ok with files on the device memory but not the sd card.
I've looking around the net but can't find any useful info.
Any help appreciated.

FBreader directory

Ditto, but I think I finally figured it out. The problem is the Books directory that the documentation says to use. Anything but. For one thing, my pc couldn't see that directory, so I deleted it and created a download/books directory. Now, I can see the epub names, and FBreader is perfectly happy with it. Don't forget to go into settings and change the default directory to the new one.

Don't forget, on the S3 the internal storage shows up in the file tree as "sdcard". If you have an external micro SD card installed, it will show up as "extSdCard". In FbReader, go into "Library", then "File tree", then "Device", which is subtitled "Full file system on the device". Go to the "mnt" directory, then to "extSdCard". You can also configure your "Books Directory" in the "Settings" menu to "/mnt/extSdCard/books" (or whatever folder on your micro SD card you want to use).
